The Boilermaker Business Exchange of Indianapolis was formed January 2013 by a group of businessmen and women in the Indianapolis area who share a common passion for all things that are Purdue. The goal of the organization is to raise the profile of Purdue University in Indianapolis and to support Purdue University, the Purdue Alumni Association and the John Purdue Club. This is a nonprofit group that has tapped into the business community of Indianapolis to help promote Purdue by hosting high profile events, encouraging attendance at the various Purdue events and keeping its members engaged with the University.
As we continue to develop and grow the BBE, we will have additional initiatives that will help us accomplish our primary goals. We are currently organizing several key events in 2017 including:
- Networking events
- VIP invites around Purdue initiatives, such as Purdue Polytechnic High School
- Our 5th Annual BBE Golf Invitational
- A State of Purdue address with Purdue President Mitch Daniels
- The Circle UP! Boiler Tailgate 2.0 on Monument Circle on Friday September 1st.
- The 2nd Annual BBE Business Hall of Fame inductions at the Krannert Leadership Series event at the Indiana Roof Ballroom
- And many more…
